I am getting back on birth control so what are good ones?

To start off I cannot use a nuva ring or that would be my choice. I was on the depo shot for almost 2 years then got off of it. I was thinking the pill but there are several different types so I am not sure what to ask for and also I have problems remembering to take it so any tips on that would be nice too. If I can't find something I suppose I will go on depo again but the effects of getting off of it were horrible for me. So..can anyone help?

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
